"Stunning new late '60s psychedelic hard rock 2CD anthology with 12 page color booklet. Don't be fooled by the name-- with a moniker like Wildwood, you might expect pastoral lite-rock from some self-absorbed hippies. Instead, this hard rocking quartet of the same name parlayed some of the toughest, most malevolent late '60s sounds heard on tape, and their spectacular legacy is celebrated upon the deluxe 2CD anthology Plastic People. Wildwood hailed from the tough blue-collar environs of Stockton in California's Central Valley and they walked it like they talked it. In the late '60s Bay Area mellow milieu, Wildwood was the exception-- dark and vaguely sinister in both look and style, they melded the fuck you attitude of the garage era with a soulful R&B streak and some enviable hard rock chops. Nevertheless, the outfit ruled the region between the years of 1968 and 1972, promoting their own shows and recording a slew of original material at the old Fantasy warehouse in San Francisco. Two sought-after 45s -- 'Plastic People' and 'Free Ride' -- were all that escaped of Wildwood for public consumption at the time, but Frantic has gathered up the rest of the sessions to present the rest of their outstanding, power-packed repertoire."
